18. September 2018 · Comments Off on Kinderhook Lake Selected for Study by Grad Student · Categories: AIS, General Information, Water quality, Water treatment

Kinderhook Lake has been selected for study by a student in the Professional Science Master’s Lake Management Program at the State University of NY at Oneonta. This is the only Lake Management degree program in the US. Over the course of one year, Amanda Setteducate will study and evaluate the lake’s water quality and nutrient levels, invasive species, watershed, and issues important to the lake community. It is expected that the study will result in a report that will provide recommendations for implementation of future lake management efforts. The KLC Board of Directors and Water Quality Committee is excited to work with Amanda and is looking forward to receiving assistance from her and the Lake Management program.

You can read more at Lake Management Graduate Program. If you have any questions about the Program or what Amanda will be doing at Kinderhook Lake, you can contact her at settan29@oneonta.edu.

 

 

06. July 2018 · Comments Off on HABs Health Advisory Cancelled · Categories: General Information, Water quality

Effective Friday, July 6, 2018, the NYS Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) has lifted the Health Advisory for Harmful Algal Blooms on Kinderhook Lake that was issued on June 29, 2018.

DEC staff accompanied a member of our water quality committee today on a site visit around the lake and saw no evidence of any algal blooms currently on the lake. As such, the advisory has been lifted and the advisory signs around the lake will be down-posted tomorrow morning.

To be clear, the lake was NEVER closed and despite news reported on TV and in some of our local papers, the advisory was only to be on the lookout for HABs and to avoid the blooms, if spotted.

29. June 2018 · Comments Off on HABs Reminder During the Coming Heat Wave · Categories: General Information, Water quality

With the extended heat wave forecast over the next week or so, people and pets will want to stay cool in the lake. This is a good opportunity to remind everyone to be cautious of harmful algal blooms (HABs) that can form anytime, but especially during these hot spells. The following information is provided for easy reference and includes links to websites and related documents. It was provided by DEC through the Cornell University Cooperative Extension. Additional information can be found on Page 3 of the Spring 2018 KLC News.

****************************************************************************************************************************

People Exposure

If you think you may have been exposed to a HAB and are experiencing symptoms, contact your physician or, in the case of severe reactions, seek immediate medical attention. You should inform your physician and your local health department if you were exposed to an algal bloom, both to help determine the proper course of treatment and to determine if others should also be notified of this potential risk. More information about these symptoms can be found on the Department of Health Blue-green Algae webpage. Swimming at regulated beaches will greatly reduce your risk of exposure to HABs, since beaches are closely monitored for the presence of blooms. Beach closures by health officials are conducted to protect swimmers.

Animal Exposure

HABs cells can stick to animal fur and become concentrated when the animal cleans itself. Rinse your dog, pet or livestock with clean water and seek veterinarian medical assistance should your animal show any signs of distress. HABs may release a fast-acting nerve toxin that can be dangerous for pets, particularly dogs that swim within blooms. Symptoms of HABs exposure for dogs include:

  • Stumbling, seizures, convulsions, paralysis
  • Excessive salivation or drooling
  • Disorientation, inactivity or depression
  • Elevated heart rate, and difficulty breathing

If you see or suspect any of these symptoms, particularly within 30 minutes to a few hours after exposure to an algal bloom, seek immediate veterinarian care.

Long-term exposure to algal liver toxins may lead to symptoms such as repeated vomiting (green liquid), diarrhea or tarry (bloody) stool, loss of appetite, anorexia, jaundice (yellowing of eye whites or gums), abdominal swelling tender to the touch, cyanosis (bluish coloration) of skin, dark urine or reduced urine output. Your veterinarian should be consulted to see if veterinarian assistance is appropriate. Any information you can provide to the veterinarian about the potential duration of algae exposure will help to determine the appropriate course of action.

New York Sea Grant published a Dogs and Harmful Algal Blooms (HABs) (PDF) (809 KB) brochure. The brochure includes descriptions of common symptoms and what to do, information about toxins and how dogs are exposed, how to reduce your dog’s risk of exposure and how to report suspected blooms.

29. March 2018 · Comments Off on Water Will Rise to Summer Level · Categories: General Information

 

Time to get your boats and gear ready!! On Sunday, April 1st, the sluice gate will be closed and the flashboards installed on the dam so the lake can start rising to summer level. The speed of the rise will be dependent on rain and snowmelt, so please be sure to complete any shoreline projects by the end of this weekend.

DEC Encourages Anglers to Put Safety First When Ice Fishing

It’s always sad to see the lake draining to winter levels, but remember how much fun you had on the lake this past summer and that next summer will be here before you know it. Fall is usually a beautiful time of year and is also time for a few important reminders:

  1. Remember to complete any shoreline projects this Fall, as the water can rise quickly in the Spring depending on snowmelt and rain. Plus, our DEC Drawdown Permit requires that we raise the lake back to summer levels as soon as the ice is off the lake in the Spring.
  2. Please do not rake leaves into the lake bed, as rotting leaves will become nutrients for future weed and algae growth. Also, if you can, please rake fallen leaves out of the lake bed.
  3. Please do not throw brush or branches into the lake, as they end up at the dam clogging the sluice gate debris rack and inhibiting control of the water level.
